Transmittal 2010 - 9

PARIS MEMBER STATES:

This transmittal is to inform all member states that there was an issue with the VA File this past quarter.  The lower number of matches was due to the VA converting to a new system called VETSNET.  They began converting cases to this system back in 2008 but it appears that the bulk of the conversion has been done recently. The VA is currently working on a solution to this situation with DMDC.  We will provide you with any updates or changes as they become available.  The VA lists finding a resolution to this situation as a high priority.
